Ideas for decorating a boy’s bedroom

A child’s bedroom should be a sanctuary, a soothing place to rest and sleep. It should also be a fun space that inspires daydreams and allows room for creativity.

Here are some fresh ideas for ways to decorate a boy’s bedroom…

Decorate those walls!

This black-and-white room makes great use of decals, which ties in with the duvet cover and other bits of decor. You could alternatively paint a pattern or use fabric cut-outs. 

Throw in some education

From alphabets to globes, wall maps, Lego, take-apart models and more, there are many ways to create both stimulation and enjoyment for you child through his bedroom décor.

Too many boy’s bedrooms overuse the colour blue in their décor. This bedroom is great in its restraint, incorporating touches of blue in the lamp and one frame, and leaving room for other things to come to the fore, such as the striped rug and patterned toy bin, not to mention the zippy little police car and other toys.

Make it an adventure

If you’ve got the imagination and inclination, there’s no limit to how far you can go with the décor, making his room a real adventure! This camo bedroom with its hideout and slide is ingenious, the only danger is that Dad will be jealous of his boy’s bedroom!

We love how creative this room is, taking its inspiration from the outdoors – floating cloud shelves, stuffed woodland animals, painted trees on the bedstead, even a little toadstool. Who wouldn’t want to camp out in a tepee in this fun room?

This little boy’s room includes monster cushions, which for some will make the room a hit no matter what else is done with it. The various polka dots throughout the room tie it all together nicely, along with the simple back and white palette. The winning factor of course is the trail of little footprints leading to the bed.

Rocking the shared bedroom

We love the classy colour scheme here: orange, grey and white. While this bedroom is clearly for little boys – their names on are their respective pillows, there are tigers on the cushion covers, and each bed has an initial above it, what’s great is that by putting away these few things the room can keep up with aging and doesn’t become outdated. If you’re looking to do things once off, then try to think how the décor can transition with the children as they grow older.

These brothers’ bedroom in Singapore is minimalist but still lots of fun. Notice the pole turned into a hat and backpack stand – a great idea!

Bunk beds are of course a clever use of space if you live somewhere small.

Teenager vibes

Arguably this room could be for a boy or girl, as its simplicity strips it of the usual gender associations. Yet it is still fun, having a quirky lamp, matching unusual colours together, and having a large blackboard wall that while used here for maths could also be for creative doodlings and other expressions of individuality.

As boys get older, often less is more as they establish new identities and want to put away the little childish things that once cluttered their rooms. Investing in one big poster of your kid’s passion could be just the thing to give the room distinct character and make it feel like his room.
